My Dad - possible Parkinson's

So my dad and mom went to the specialist the other day.

Turns out that the neuropathy that dad deals with might be more than just neuropathy (which is causing some deadened feelings in various parts of his body). Dad might have a form of Parkinson's disease. NOT the type that causes shakiness though. Apparently there are a few different forms of Parkinson's. It does run in the family.

He'll need more tests to confirm the tentative diagnosis, but for now they are putting him on meds to see if that will help him or not.
